Ant McPartlin has "found love" with the personal assistant who "put him back together again" as his wife spoke of her heartbreak.
The troubled television presenter and Anne-Marie Corbett, both 42, grew close after the personal assistant's unwavering support through McPartlin's drink and drug troubles.
McPartlin announced in January that he and his wife, Lisa Armstrong, were divorcing after 11 years together. She tweeted a series of heartbreak emojis on Sunday morning after hearing of her husband's reported new-found love.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: "Anne-Marie’s put him back together again. Everyone’s thrilled he’s found someone to love.
"He’s had a tough time of it, but Anne-Marie has put a smile back on his face again. She has been his rock. They have been living in each other’s pockets, day in, day out.
"Knowing someone is there for him has brought him back from the brink — she’s put him back together again.
“It’s very early days, but everyone is hoping he can put the worst year of his life behind him and find happiness again. Both of them deserve it.”
The pair have been employed by the same London-based management company for ten years but only recently began working together.
Ms Corbett separated from her own partner - whom she had two children with - in October last year, but it has been stressed that this had no relation to her romance with McPartlin.
McPartlin was fined £86,000 and given a 20-month road banafter being found guilty of drink-driving in March.
